APPARENTLY I'M ALSO TOO RETARDED TO NOTICE THAT THE OLD THREAD IS IN AUTOSAGE

It's irrational to expect more than 12 chapters a year from someone claiming to be an author?

Or to refuse to pet dogs after being bitten 19 times?

You know, maybe you're right. Maybe I am autistic in the way I read and vote. Thinking back, I would almost have to be if I'm still coming to this website.

I suppose you're right. I really have been conditioned to only vote in stories that are truly remarkable, both in terms of content and updates. Maybe if you authors stepped your game up in those aspects for about four years I might eventually become less jaded and autistic.

Let me magically become the ultimate writer.

Just gimme a minute.

Any second, now.

Okay, there we go.

No, wait. No, that didn't work.

But in all seriousness, more often than not, I get better results from voters by trying less hard. By being silly. By not even trying, honestly.

It's kinda sad to try so hard and get nowhere, yet get 3-5x as many voters that try twice as hard on something dumb I wrote in like 10-20 minutes.

That's because instead of trying to write, you actually write something when you do that. We voters don't care how much you tried to write, we only care about what you actually did write. It gets the update out faster, and if you are a decent writer the update will still probably be a good read even with less planning. In the wise words of master Yoda, "Do or do not. There is no try."

Or to put it into context with that Goku picture of yours, instead of screaming for 10 episodes powering up to Super Saiyan 57 before you start fighting your writers block, just start the battle right from the get go. Or if you insist on preparing and planning before you take on your writers block, just power up to Super Saiyan 1. Level 1 is more than enough power to defeat the evil forces of the writers block.

...I'm not even sure where you got that from. Wasn't even what I was talking about.

I don't sit over my writing, I don't brood until the words line up, and I don't scream for 56 episodes.

I just write.

But, that said, there are different degrees of effort one can put into that writing. There is more to it than simply putting pen to paper, there is also complexity of story and the plot itself. Making mindless drivel is easy, and people love it. It's the junkfood of writing. Then you have more complicated stories with a niche audience. They take more effort to make and have less in the way of an audience for it.

I work my ass off for writing, that said. I don't think much, but instead do a lot. I've entered the site's NaNoWriMo stuff twice now with my actual stories. Were they worse for it? Possibly. Was that because I wrote too fast? No, it wasn't. It was sleep deprivation and other such things that worsened the stories. It was not, however, the rate of production that did it.

Hopefully I made sense, as I was increasingly distracted while writing this. Sorry if it didn't.
>> No. 24039
I can't use the update checkbox because I don't have a trip. Teruyo decided to demote us tripless authors to second-class citizens because he doesn't trust our voters not to be assholes.

I am insulted and mad over ten inconsequential lines of text on a page I never visit. Why not just force everyone to make an account and sign in while you were at it?

Nah, you won't. Ten years of dealing with writers and encouraging, understanding and even offering them to write as well as an act of solidarity shows that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. Not that it means it's completely futile, just that it saves time if we don't say things we don't ever intend to do.

Besides, apparently I'm a hostage-taker now. So even if had people who wanted me to write and would actually read and vote, why would I want to give up that sweet gig?

I want to rage at the lack of rage. Has THP mellowed out in its old age? Or have we burned too intensely and been reduced to a pile of ash?

besides that I still rage at the lack of a watched threads feature and having to refresh the front page like an animal.

I'm mad that one of my favorite stories fell off the thread list and hasn't been archived yet, and that I forgot for four years to save a local copy

I've heavily considered opening a PO box (the monetary burden lies on me there), and, failing that, making a public email is easy. Postcards/letter/etc is meant to be a general, tangible token of support. Money can be that too, but I think it's more accessible (largely independent of financial situation/greed/""shilling""/other dirty stuff surrounding money) to send a letter.

This is my personal reason for not asking for money, and not an indictment of those who would.
